This independent feature by Cajun-reared, Harvard-educated Glen Pitre delves into a forgotten but fascinating chapter of World War II: shortly after Pearl Harbor, as German U-boats slip into the Gulf of Mexico, a coastal town on the Louisiana bayou is infected by fear of spies and collaborators. A disgraced woman who works a shrimp boat (Tatum O'Neill) falls for a mysterious European doctor who's just arrived in town (Julian Sands), and both become targets of a witch hunt led by a handsome young coast guard ensign (Eion Bailey). Scripted by Pitre and his wife, Michelle Benoit, this is more interesting for its historical setting than for its rather wooden drama, but Tim Curry gives a pretty good performance as the town's whiskey priest. 99 min.
